scheduling on yield, the dated crop water production function (DCWPF) model was developed to quantify the functional relationships between crop yield and ET or ET deficit ( Rao et al., 1988 ). The DCWPF model can apply additive and multiplicative forms to

. Mathematical functions are used to relate the plant development rate to environmental factors such as temperature ( Erwin and Heins, 1990 ; Faust and Heins, 1993 ; Fisher et al., 1996 ). These models can then be used as decision-support tools that allow

the development of quantitative irrigation guidelines and/or weather-based irrigation models could assist nursery and floriculture growers in reducing their water use while still meeting the needs of their crops. This is especially true because growers
